Golden Age of Insect Aviation: The Great Grasshoppers, a 10 second adventure by Wayne Unten. Music by Dave Gottlieb. Unten writes:

“In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America.”

While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone. This is one of many short animated clips I’ve made for fun.
